Getting 'robbed'

The C-P's 6/3 editorial, 'Battleship commission needs its sails trimmed,' was right on course. You nominated Assemblyman Joseph Azzolina, chair of the USS New Jersey Battleship Commission, as poster child for arrogance. I would like to add the nomination of Congressman Rob Andrews for 'missing without action.'

Where is Andrews on this effort to bring the ship home?

I have been in contact with Sen. John Matheussen and cannot find any record either publicly or privately that confirms any efforts by Rob Andrews to honor our veterans, shipyard workers, and all of South Jersey by bringing the New Jersey home to Camden. The lack of effort raises several questions.

Is Rob Andrews more interested in assisting possible campaign for governor supporters in North Jersey by remaining silent and allowing the ship to go to Bayonne?

For every tax dollar that working people here in the district send to Rob Andrews in Washington, we receive only 69 cents back. That puts us in last place in the entire United States for return from the federal government.

It is clear that with Andrews in Congress, we're getting 'robbed'! Let's work to bring the New Jersey to the Camden Waterfront - even if Rob Andrews is 'missing without action.'
